Caramel Eclairs-Christophe Adam

25 Apr

It’s Spring again….my time flies. Easter was just last week and I had made chocolate bunnies and eggs as gifts. There is something beautiful about Spring as the birds are chirping again and the trees and flowers are in full bloom. It is the time of year were signs of life is emerging again after a dreary winter. While it has been a month, I finally decided to add to my blog.

I have always been a fan of Parisian pastries in particular eclairs. I recently bought a beautiful book by Christophe Adam, L’Eclair Genie. He is known for his creative and beautiful eclairs. The book was quite well done as each page there photographs and step by step instructions. As I flip through the pages filled with gorgeous eclairs, I stopped at the caramel eclairs.

Caramel Cream
3/4 tsp unflavoured gelatin powder
2 1/2 tsp cold water
2/3 cup whipping cream
1/2 tsp fleur de sel
9 tbsp granulated sugar
8 oz marscapone cheese

Choux Pastry
2/3 cup water
2/3 cup whole milk
1 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup butter
3/4 tsp salt
295 ml flour
5 large eggs

Result: It was very creamy and the caramel was not over powering. I will surely do another one of his recipes.
